Save The Mural!

Sadly enough, we are about to lose a true west-end gem, the Quinpool Road McDonalds. For years the so called "Highschool McDonalds" has been an important community gathering space, a third place, somewhere where neighbourhood residents from all demographics can come together and enjoy camaraderie and delicious food both hot and cold. The centrepiece of the second best peninsula McDonalds is a beautiful mural; a massive painting by R. W. LeFresne of Halifax's Public Gardens that adorns the west wall of the space. McDonalds Canada, we are begging you to save and donate the mural, as we lose community spaces to the march of time and capital we need to rely on art to preserve collective memory, and what memories are more important than the ones we share over a few Big Macs?
